A 74-year-old Lathrop man,  reportedly seen driving erratically Tuesday morning,  was followed onto Highway 99 by a delivery van driver and arrested by motorcycle officers for driving under the influence, police said.

Ulysses Windom had been stopped an hour earlier by Tracy officers who cited him for failure to yield and for being an unlicensed non- resident driver.  

Manteca Police first received a call about a motorist who had made a u-turn at Louise and Cottage avenues.  The delivery van driver spotted him next near Louise and Main streets where he allegedly made a right turn onto North Main Street driving over the concrete barrier traveling northbound in the southbound lanes.  

Officers said he then ran into the bushes bordering  the northbound onramp at the North Main Street extension to Highway 99 where he ran off the side of the roadway.
 
After entering the freeway he pulled off to the shoulder just south of Lathrop Road with the delivery van right behind him and Manteca motor sergeant Nick Obligacion pulling in behind the two vehicles.  Obligacion and his partner Patrick Danipour arrested  Windwom for driving under the influence and towed his car on a 30-day hold.  

Danipour poured out the remains of a half bottle of vodka that he found in the front seat of the car.
